Rural Development Programme

The Rural Development Programme is making £623 million available to help people in rural areas turn their business plans into reality.  The next round of funding applications is expected shortly with experience telling us those in a position to ‘GO’ being given preference.

Areas for which people can apply for grants could include the creation of new tourism accommodation and visitor activities, or new equipment to enable companies to target new markets.
At CMI Planning, we are highly experienced in advising rural businesses in the farming and tourism sectors, whether start-ups or established companies. Indeed in the last round of funding we helped secure in excess of 1.2M for our clients. We can also help with raising finance, including assisting with preparing funding applications and finding alternative sources of funding.
